Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone. (Not) a Review. First time I watched anime in cinema. (Showing only in Cineleisure Picturehouse, BTW) Frankly, I donno nuts about Evangelion. I've always been more of a Transformers guy. All that depressing apocalyptic anime shit doesn't appeal to me. Until now.
Movie is good if you don't know anything about Evangelion. Even better if you know a lot about it. The action scenes damn cool. Someone said better than in the TV show itself. And the Angels are damn cool too. But after the fight, You dread the death of the Angels, Because then the endless emo-ing starts.
The pace of the show is like this. Action, BOOM BOOM KABOOM! Then the Angel die. And the Emo-ing starts. Emo emo emo emo WHY ME? WHY I HAVE TO PILOT THE EVO? WHY DO I DO THIS? WHY WHY WHY? Ooo, naked chick. Wait, it's a cartoon. Bah.
A lot of typical anime elements. Hot chicks with big boobs. A bloody emo hero. Some bigger agenda behind everything Bras and panties flying around. And a weird animal mascot-like thingy. Oh, and the giant robots, And the weird monsters/angels.
BTW, WTF are Angels anyway? Damned if I know. WTF are those Eva robots? No idea. Why the hell are the pilots KIDS? Donno. And what does NERV stand for? Fuck knows. Nothing is explained! Everything is so confusing! ARGH! Damn this confounded anime jargon! And what the fuck is up with that BRACKET in the title anyway?
